Ms Claudia Stege - Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Claudia Stege speaks to ecancer at the International Society of Geriatric Oncology 2018 conference in Amsterdam about the international myeloma working group frailty score for elderly patients with multiple myeloma.

She begins by explaining how the score relies on some figures which aren't always available, and what we can use as a proxy for these situations.

Stege also outlines some of the more general complications seen in elderly patients with multiple myeloma.

She describes how she would improve the scoring system, by adding self-reported physical functioning.

This service has been kindly supported by an unrestricted grant from Janssen Oncology.
